No scripting required for global logistics firm conducting Tosca test automation

When software testing at one global logistics company needed to be sped up, the engineers turned to automated continuous testing from Tricentis.

Tricentis said in a customer case study that adoption of Tricentis Tosca at the company enabled manual test execution cycles of one week to be automated and conducted in 15 minutes.

“Organisational leaders knew defects in production could have deep repercussions for business-critical applications handling transport logistics, capacity planning, and cargo handling,” the company said.

“Scripted based automation efforts had failed multiple times in the past and reduced confidence in test automation. Delivery of a service should be right the first time.”

Automation of testing meant applications can be updated and released more often, and multiple environments tested alongside “extensive post-test analysis”. Testing can be triggered automatically, for reliable results twice a day or on demand.

According to Tricentis, the logistics company’s testing needed to cover 34 different system statuses as well as the execution of over 1,600 system test messages, with half of those requiring replication on system integration test (SIT) and user acceptance testing (UAT) system environments.

Previously, a small testing team of three manual testers took at least a week to complete a single test cycle, which meant tests typically could only be run once per release. The team’s lack of scripting knowledge and resources as well as script maintenance challenges meant automation in-house was not an option.

“Tosca allowed their initial three-person testing team to expand the scope of testing they performed on critical systems, quickly and easily, without having to learn a scripting language,” according to Tricentis.

“Today, regression testing is in place for every critical business application and covers 100% of all movement statuses for both SIT and UAT.”
